Abstract:
Diabetic mellitus (DM) and thyroid dysfunction are the two most common endocrine disorders in clinical practice. In several studies, thyroid dysfunction and type 2 DM are associated and this association has been reported and first published in 1979. The prevalence of thyroid disorder in general population is ranging from 6.6% to 13.4%. In diabetic patients, the prevalence is still greater and varies from 10 to 24%. However, fewer studies have estimated higher prevalence of 31% to 46.5% respectively. Screening of thyroid disorder especially subclinical hypothyroidism in patients with type 2 DM is important because most patients are asymptomatic and is one of the leading causes of death worldwide due to complications.
